Downtown Oakland before verdict 10

Photos taken in the vicinity of 15th and Webster, downtown Oakland, July 8, 2010, around 2pm -- just a couple of hours before the verdict in the Johannes Mescherle trial was due to be announced.

 

Many -- although far from most -- businesses were boarded up, in case of rioting.
